Bow Fishing, Rifle Caching, and Essential Skills

I am starting on new weekly column on Survival Cache this week called Saturday Links. It is a small collection of links to the best survival articles I found this week.

1. First up, Scott, at wrote a great article on Bow Fishing. A food gathering option that I have never considered before but definitely sounds interesting. Reading the article, Scott makes it sounds really easy, but I am guessing there is a pretty good learning curve.  I would also recommend an emergency fishing kit in your Bug Out Bag from Forge Survival Supply.

2. Next is an awesome video posted over at Accept the Challenge on ways to protect things like rifles for long term storage in a survival cache. The video goes through the whole process with a rifle. Very cool and surprisingly cheap (unless you are adding up your time to get the supplies and make it) – we have found a more professional way to Cache rifles with the Master Cacher Vault System.  (Best part, all of the anti-humidity bags and products included, turn key)

3. Finally, a good list post by The Survival Mom about essential survival skills. This will be good for newer survivalists, but I also enjoyed it because it makes you think about something just as important as your survival gear: your survival skills, something I think is undervalued in the survivalist community.
